Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., on Monday criticized House Democrats for their investigations of President Donald Trump, saying their probe “doesn’t look like a real investigation.”
Nunes, the ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee, told Hill.TV in an interview that the panel’s Democrats are conducting “an investigation in search of a crime,” and praised Republicans on the committee for the report it produced last year.
“We’ve known this for a year and a half. We continued to look, we finally had our report that came out in the spring of last year that I think everyone is aware of, and that report has really stood the test of time,” Nunes said in the interview, which was taped last week and released on Monday.
“If you look at a lot of the indictments of the Russians, a lot of that information was either gleaned directly from that report or it came from the sources, and that was the indictment of I think the 17 Russians that were involved in the troll farms,” he added.
“If you look at the information on Carter Page that had to do with him coming before our committee, no matter if you think Carter Page is innocent or guilty, the fact is that our committee had a great product,” Nunes said.
